In the dining room of this traditional coaching inn, built in 1548 in the town where Wordsworth went to grammar school, the emphasis is on organic lake trout from Esthwaite Water, as well as local favorites such as wild Graythwaite estate pheasant, cured hams and Cumberland sausage, Herdwick lamb, local venison, haggis, black pudding, and fresh cheeses. The inn also rents 13 rooms and is a convenient base for exploring Near Sawrey (where Beatrix Potter lived), Esthwaite Water, Grizedale Forest, Claife Heights, and Tarn Hows.
